Travis Scott and Rihanna may be preparing to go on tour together next month, but it appears that Scott isn’t happy with Rihanna’s recent collaboration with Drake for the duo’s chart-topping hit, “Work.”
Drake and Rihanna made headlines earlier this week after releasing two steamy music videos for “Work” in which Rihanna can be seen dancing and grinding on her former boyfriend in the dance hall-inspired videos. While several sources have spoken out against the Rihanna and Drake reunion claims following the release of the duo’s videos, it appears that Travis Scott isn’t too happy with Drake’s recent closeness to Rihanna.
Yesterday, rumors of an emerging feud between Travis Scott and Drake began after the rapper reportedly dissed Drake in a series of Snapchat posts.

In the posts, Travis Scott refers to Drake by his nickname, the “6God,” while also referencing lyrics from the Toronto rapper’s new collaboration with Rihanna.

“6God gotta werk werk MORE,” Scott reportedly wrote on Snapchat alongside a laughing-crying emoji, Brand New Hip Hop reports.
In another screengrab from Scott’s Snapchat account, Travis continues his rant about Drake with, “F*** 6GOD,” before threatening to “pull a Chris brown on this n****,” seemingly referencing Chris Brown and Drake’s longstanding feud over their past relationships with Rihanna.
Travis Scott reportedly concludes his Snapchat rant with some advice to Drake on how to win over Rihanna, telling the “Hotline Bling” rapper, “She wants the flame not no emotional n****!!”
While some fans were quick to question the validity of the newly emerged screengrabs, several fans took to Twitter to seemingly confirm Travis’ rant about Drake on the social media app by weighing-in with their thoughts on the duo’s rumored feud.
“Travis Scott was dissing drake on his snap last night…6god about to claim another victim lol,” one fan wrote in response to Travis’ Snapchat posts.
Similarly, another fan explains, “Travis Scott ain’t having it *laughing-crying emojis* man said 6God gotta werk werk MORE.”
However, it’s worth noting that Travis took to Twitter on the same day that he reportedly dissed Drake to tell fans, “my snapchatt is scottxx fyi. I don’t know how many fake accounts u guys follow. I barely use mine maybe 1 every two months.”
While it’s unclear whether or not Travis Scott and Drake are really feuding over Rihanna, the “Diamonds” singer personally shut down rumors suggesting that she’s in a relationship during a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres for The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In response to DeGeneres’ quips about her new collaboration with Drake, Rihanna aimed to clarify her relationship status.
“I’m single right now and it’s not that I’m like, ‘Oh, pro-single, yes, I hate men! I just think I have so much on my plate that I can’t even find the time to entertain a steady relationship or anything serious. Or even a text.”
While Rihanna may be living the single life now, the songstress previously ignited dating rumors with Travis Scott back in September after the duo were spotted cuddling and kissing during a New York Fashion Week after party in NYC, TMZ reports.

The duo further fueled dating claims after Scott appeared alongside Rihanna in an advertisement for the songstress’ collaborative sneaker collection with PUMA, only to be announced as one of the opening acts for the U.S. portion of Rihanna’s upcoming “Anti World Tour” just months later.
